Generally, these conditions occur following an injury to the nervous system due to the resort of carbon monoxide intoxication and/or manganese intoxication.
Levodopa is used to diagnose stiffness, tremors, spasms, and poor muscle control that is associated with Parkinson disease. Sometimes, some other drugs chlorpromazine, perphenazine, fluphenazine cause parkinsonism-like symptoms. These symptoms are also treated by the Syndopa medicine.
How does Syndopa work?
Levodopa is a pro-drug and crosses the blood-brain barrier and it has the ability to change into dopamine in the brain, which helps to control body movement. On the other hand, Carbidopa can prevent the breakdown of Levodopa in the bloodstream so more Levodopa can enter the brain. Moreover, Carbidopa can reduce the side effects of Lvodopa too.
